TSVN - Problem with locked and unmodified files

Hi all,

I have a (little) problem with file locking:

In the TortoiseSVN documentation it calls under “Releasing a Lock”: “If you continue with the commit, locks you hold on the selected files are removed, even if the files haven't been modified.” In fact the locks are still there when the file is unmodified (TortoiseSVN 1.6.6 on a Vista-PC).

What I’ve done:
I’ve set the “needs:lock” property on a file and commit it.
The file is now read-only (the overlay icon is grey) and I’ve get the lock with “TortoiseSVN” -> “Get Lock…”.
The overlay icon has the “lock-icon” now.
Now I want to commit the file unchanged to the repository and select “SVN Commit…”.
The file is listed in the “Changes made” window with “Text status = normal”, “Property Status = normal”, “Lock = myusername” and the “Keep locks” checkbox is unchecked.
After pushing the OK-button TortoiseSVN displays
“Command: Commit
But the lock is still mine! The overlay icon shows still a lock and other users get an error message when they try to get the lock.
However, the commitment of modified files works fine.
